Buffy's Famous Pig: Mr. Gordo Plush Toy

buffy_mr_gordo_plush.jpg

How long does it take to complete a character licensing deal, you wonder? Let's see, Buffy The Vampire Slayer went off the air in 2003, and 2006 is almost over...

Entertainment Earth is promising to bring out a limited edition Mr. Gordo pig doll to satisfy the pent-up plushie urgese of Buffy fans--and perhaps their babies, if any of them have managed to spawn in between DVD marathons.

The only slightly funny thing, of course, is that the real Mr. Gordo was just a normal product, a $20 Manhattan Toy Co. Meekieminks doll named Peaches, which was discontinued several years ago. Now Peaches has been reincarnated and forced to walk the earth again. Forever.

Guess I'm not as geeked-out as I thought I was, 'cause I had no freakin' clue who "Mr. Gordo" was or what his significance to the Buffyverse was. Had to follow your links--apparently, he was important enough to be included in the Sunnydale High library playset that's on the Entertainment Earth page under "items you might also like." Heh--but if you're really buying for the kiddies, you've gotta go for the Angel muppet on the same page. ;)

[I have less idea than that, even. If it weren't for wikipedia... I'm just passing it along as a service -ed.]
